Superhero/Cheerio roleplaying, as requested.
“We meet again Crimson Cheerio,” Nightbird says with a swoosh of his cape. Mostly because it looks cool. “You thought you could get away with stealing the Crown Jewels. Not on my watch.”
Crimson Cheerio struts around him, dragging a finger down Nightbird’s armored chest. “Maybe I wasn’t trying to get away, I-” He stops, grimaces and wiggles uncomfortably. “This uniform is really tight, ugh.”
Blaine sighs, cape dropping in a flaccid flutter around him. “Kurt, you’re breaking character,” he complains.
one of my mugs has been missing, and i’m pretty sure my roommate broke it but is just pretending she didn’t and it’s making me want to hulk out.
Basically. I mean I liked the klaine and Becky and Puck stuff in Promasaurus, but I hated the bad parts of that episodes more intensely than I liked the good parts.
Those two plots were really great. But god, everything involving Rachel, Finn, and Quinn made me want to spew fire. I definitely remember that episode more for the awful than the few cute moments.
Darren’s “whiny biatch” comment made me really pessimistic about the whole thing. That and Ryan writing 514.
The last time Ryan had an episode I enjoyed was “Rumours” in S2.
I’m actually not feeling hugely doomsday about it. I’m more annoyed than anything else.
Even if it’s just a minor fight, I’m sick of them fighting. Even over stupid shit. They spent all of S4 broken up and have been living in separate states. Once they finally are both in the same city I don’t want the plots to be minor fight, Kurt gets attacked and hospitalized, more dumb fighting. I get that couples aren’t going to be happy all the time. But they’re almost never happy on screen and it’s exhausting.
Then on top of that, it’s like, they just did a jealousy plot in 5x14 where Blaine supposedly gets reassured (not by Kurt that we know of, but whatever) it’s silly to be jealous because Kurt loves him so much. So two episodes later if they go with either Blaine being jealous again or Kurt being uncertain it’ll be dumb. Especially coming off an episode where Kurt goes through a really rough time and they could have any combination of stories about him recovering from that, or the way he and Blaine feel about the attack, or Blaine helping Kurt cope as someone who had to heal from his own bashing experience, or how it affects their comfort as a couple in public, or how it affects their relationship to NY that this happens there too, or lolzy wedding planning because as part of his recovery Kurt wants to think positively and distract himself, etc. Literally so many things that would actually deal with the aftermath of the traumatizing thing they’re putting Kurt through and be a supportive, positive experience for them as a couple.
I’m going to wait until we know more before I actually get upset, but they are so bottom feeding it’s hard for me to be hopeful.
BB definitely had tonal whiplash from OMW, but at least it did address Quinn’s struggles even if it was in the barest way possible. If Glee goes the route of ~relationship issues~ again, I’m not expecting them to address the effects of Bash in any real way because yeah, going from in the hospital to fighting about their relationship because reasons is ridiculous.
And there isn’t even an expectation of Kurt’s reaction being like, “Are you seriously doing this right now? I was just in the hospital.” This discussion assumes the bashing won’t come up at all.
Even if that isn’t how it goes down, it still says a lot about the show’s history how many people are having that as their first reaction.
in a world where i had even an modicum of faith in glee, i would hope that glee is actually dealing with the consequences of kurt being attacked, and the sais and the stage combat classes are like an analogue for self-defense, and the context of love is a battlefield (even if it makes no sense but lol glee context) is an us vs. them thing as in us vs. hate for gay people. but everything is blood and tears.
Even if its just “Blaine joins Kurt’s band and they sing rock songs” I don’t want this for them.
God I don’t want Kurt to still have a rock band by then. But I guess I want them to be angsting about each other even less.
i fucking love “love is a battlefield”. but i just want some happiness. why can’t they be singing about puppies and kittens and rainbows?
